Course description and aims

Based on "Calculus I", this course focuses on more rigorous mathematical analysis of the limit of sequences of numbers and functions, applications of differentiation of functions of a single variable and partial differentiation of multivariate functions, series of numbers and sequences of functions.

The aim of this course is to provide knowledge about analysis which will be important for
science and engineering.

Student learning outcomes

Following "Calculus I", this course aims for a deeper understanding and development of the theory of calculus.


Limit, continuity, Taylor's theorem, series, sequence of functions

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Besides lectures, a recitation class is held every week in accordance with the progress of the lectures.
